Benjamin Thorp – Transitory Encounters
About The Project
The Bridge’s Spring 2014-2015 residency program featured the artist Benjamin Thorp. His efforts included leading workshops for students who live within Charlottesville’s Strategic Investment Area (SIA) to create sound installations that brought neighborhood voices and input to life.
This past year 15 local teens learned how to effectively interview, create and edit audio into musical compositions (while learning more about their neighbors). They created 6 sound installations from newspaper boxes spread throughout downtown which tell the story of their neighbors’ relationship with the city.
Program ran Spring 2014 – 2015
Partners include: Renaissance School of Charlottesville, City Of Charlottesville .
